Wilson County livestock show to open with horses
Once again the horse show will begin the Wilson County Junior Livestock Show Saturday, Jan. 19, at noon in the Wilson County Show Barn, located off S.H. 97 east of Floresville.
Halter classes for mares and geldings will be shown. Classes will be broken down in the following divisions: yearling to the 2-year-old halter; 3- to 5-year-old halter; and aged halter horses.
The halter show will be followed by showmanship, in-hand trail, and stock horse pleasure.
Showmanship will be held in three divisions -- junior (ages 8-11); intermediate (ages 12-14); and senior (ages 15-18).
All Wilson County 4-H and FFA members are eligible to participate.
The horse show judge is well-versed and will judge the breeds, such as quarter horse, Arabian, and draft breeds, such as Clydesdales, according to the breed standards. These include soundness and composition. It will be similar to the heifer judging that is conducted during the show.
For more information, call Jennifer Fuller-Miksch at 979-743-0303.
